If this sounds a bit familiar, that would be because we first told you about the game last May. (We had the name as "Pirates Adventure: Jewels of the Seven Seas.")
From Disney's press release:
In A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas, guests will use a pirate map and magic talisman to help them complete five different pirate raids throughout Adventureland. The goal is to help locate different Treasures of the Seven Seas and fight off pirate enemies like the Royal Navy and Captain Barbossa, among others. If guests help Captain Jack succeed in all the missions, they’ll be welcomed as part of his new crew. If not, they’ll face the wrath of the cruel sea – alone.
And here's how we described the game last year, from the plans we saw:
Using RFID-enabled tap points, participating Disney World guests will be able to shoot the cannons on top of the Pirates of the Caribbean fortress queue, interact with animatronic idols, parrots and snakes, and search for and open a treasure chest which has been left somewhere in Adventureland.
It's Disney's latest step to utilize those "magic wristbands" to transform the Walt Disney World Resort into an Easter Egg-filled video game-like interactive adventure that spills over from attractions themselves into their queues and the rest of the parks themselves.
